Lane Kiffin publicly disputes Nick Saban's assessment of Bama's QB

  Lane Kiffin publicly disputes Nick Saban's assessment of Bama's QB <p>Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts had a great true freshman season last year. Hurts had enormous talent around him, but he was the catalyst in an offensive machine that tore through the SEC and got the Crimson Tide to a third-straight College Football Playoff.</p>Hurts’ play got worse as the season wound down. His combined passer rating in the SEC Championship, the Peach Bowl Playoff semifinal, and a national title loss to Clemson was 108.7. It had been 147.1 in the Tide’s previous 12 games. This is understandable, as Hurts was a rookie and had to face elite defenses three times in a row: Florida’s, Washington’s, and Clemson’s. Most rookie QBs would struggle there.

Here's one way Lane Kiffin will be different as a head coach than Nick Saban.

Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin will differ from former boss Nick Saban in how he deals with his assistants . Kiffin said he is not big on ' humiliating assistant coaches '. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody.

Lane Kiffin spent three years on Nick Saban’s staff as offensive coordinator of the Alabama Crimson Tide. While the new Florida Atlantic Owls head coach obviously learned a thing or two from Saban, Kiffin seems to not agree with his former boss’ habit of “humiliating assistant coaches.”

Kiffin famously and publicly was on the receiving end of several Saban tirades during his tenure with the Tide. And while Kiffin recently avoided criticizing Saban directly for his methods, he made it clear it’s not how he runs a coaching staff.

Samsung to update software over 'red screen' smartphone

  Samsung to update software over 'red screen' smartphone Electronics giant Samsung will this week offer an unusually early software update for its newly-released Galaxy S8 phone, it said Monday after some consumers complained of red-tinted screens. The launch of the device is a key step for the South Korean tech firm as it seeks to move on from last year's humiliating withdrawal of the Galaxy Note 7 over exploding batteries, which hammered the firm's once-stellar reputation.

There are few more joyous sights in college football than that of former Bama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin getting in an argument (or should we say an ass-chewing) with his old boss, Nick Saban. I'm not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody.

“Those things come up, and everybody has different ways of dealing with them,” Kiffin said during a recent appearance on SiriusXM College Sports Nation. “It’s just not really how I do it. I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody. I write down notes. In the staff meeting, I explain what we want to get done.”

For what it’s worth, Saban doesn’t refer to the dressing-down of his assistants as “humiliating” them. He instead once colorfully called the outbursts “a– chewings,” which is how the Alabama head coach characterized a heated sideline confrontation with Kiffin during an eventual victory over Western Kentucky last season.

Kiffin’s discussion of differing coaching styles interestingly comes on the heels of a former Alabama player admitting the defensive unit routinely and purposely tried to foster situations where Saban would go off on Kiffin during practice.

Former Crimson Tide defensive lineman and NFL prospect Jonathan Allen said the defense would “try to get Coach Saban mad at [Kiffin] and try to get him yelled at in practice.”

“It was just during (drills),” Allen recalled, via Saturday Down South. “We would just try to blow it up and just destroy it and kill the offense and then you would know Kiffin’s just…gonna get it, after you just blow it up in the backfield. That’s probably the most fun we had at Alabama during practice this year, just watching Coach Saban lay into Kiffin.”
